Maine - Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington Railway Museum
Sheepscot, ME - Maine's Wiscasset, Waterville, and Farmington (WW&F) Railway was a two-foot narrow gauge common carrier railroad that operated from 1894 until 1933. The line ran from Wiscasset in the south, to Albion and Winslow in the north, never making it to either Waterville or Farmington. The Great Depression brought about the railroad's scrapping in 1937.

The WW&F Railway Museum was founded in 1989 to restore and rebuild the original railroad. Since then we've restored 2.5 miles of railroad, rebuilt several original railroad cars, and are restoring a steam locomotive. Today you can climb aboard our train for a ride back in time.

Maryland - Brunswick Railroad Museum
Brunswick, MD - The mission of the Brunswick Heritage Museum is to tell the story of Brunswick, past to present, through dynamic presentations and programs for history lovers and rail fans of all ages. For over 30 years, the Museum has preserved the history of Brunswick. Known during the Civil War as Berlin, this small town along the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal and Baltimore & Ohio Railroad was incorporated as Brunswick in 1890. That same year the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad began construction of the 5 mile rail yard that would reshape Brunswick into a company town with a population of over 5000!

The BHM can be seen as two museums in one. On the second floor, the Museum's exhibits tell the story of a town built by the B&O railroad at the turn of the 20th century and the people who lived here. Recreations of late Victorian rooms are the centerpiece complimented by exhibits that recall the lives of the railroaders and their families in the early 1900's. Upstairs on the third floor is our 1700 square foot HO Scale model railroad that depicts the B&O Metropolitan Subdivision beginning at the west end of Brunswick's rail yard and running eastward through Montgomery County communities all the way to Union Station in Washington D.C. The model railroad comes alive with many interactive elements.

Maryland - Friends of President Street Station
Baltimore, MD - The historic 1849 President Street Station, the oldest big city train station in America, has been restored in 1997 after a 15-year long battle to serve as the Baltimore Civil War Museum. The terminal of the old Philadelphia, Wilmington & Baltimore Railroad was later absorbed into the Pennsylvania Railroad. Construction was supervised by Isaac Ridgway Trimble, later a Confederate major general who participated in the famed Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg. Longtime head of the line during the 1850s and 60s was President Samuel Morse Felton who notified detective Alan Pinkerton of the existence of an assasination plot against President Abraham Lincoln on his way to his inaguration in Washington in February 1861, causing Lincoln to re-route his trip and pass through Baltimore at night. Several months later the station was also the site of the "First Bloodshed of the Civil War" on Friday, April 19, 1861 as the 6th Massachusetts volunteer militia regiment accompanied by the 26th and 27th Pennsylvania regiments ("The Washington Brigade") were attacked while attempting to pass through to get to the Nation's Capital for its defense after the earlier firing on Fort Sumter and the subsequent call by the President for 75,000 volunteers to suppress the rebellion. The Baltimore Civil War Museum has displays and multi-media presentations regarding the railroad history, unique architecture of the station, as an Underground Railroad escape route and its Civil War heritage with the occupation of Baltimore and the state. It is on the National Register of Historic Places and is operated by the Maryland Historical Society (website: http://www.mdhs.org) and supported by the Friends of President Street Station, Inc. The PSS is also on the list of the Maryland Civil War Trails program.

The site is located at 601 South President Street; Baltimore, MD
